There was an excellent thread on a UK business forum along this line a while back that I have to say made very enjoyable reading Go for it Nos .. try and get as many rediculous scenarios as possible in there , lost trousers, locked out of hotel room without credit cards, puncture caused by penguine whilst onway to make payment etc I suppose all that depends on your 'mark' though ..

I think I scared him off

Start from the bottom.

David,
No, I'm not kidding in the slightest.The security protocols DEMAND this. I live and work on ***** army camp (my address is ************) and as of yet my car is not fitted with a towbar so the boat will need to be delivered to my front garden.
However, the newspaper is not essential as long as there is something in the picture with the days date on it. The date written underneath the code word will be fine.

Either you want the money or you don't. I've 2460 sat here in cash waiting to be sent to you. We're in a recession and there's plenty of other cheap boats out there. If you're unable to deliver to my house I'll just buy one that can be delivered here and you can find another buyer.

Nick.

Hi Nick,

I'm not happy with this arrangement, I'm sorry but I cannot do that because it is against the rules of the shipping company. I cannot oblige the person who will be delivering the boat to take a photograph holding a sign showing your job related code word with a newspaper. Are you kidding ???

I can deliver the boat at any other address in the UK.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO.

David

Hi,
Thanks David.

I'm having a little trouble withdrawing the cash from the bank to take to my local moneygram agent at the moment.
They will only allow me to take 800 a day out of my account in cash so it is going to take a few days before I can send the money gram.
In the meantime, as I am currently employed as a Garfish Knob Cleaner on an army base, and this is where I live I will need the boat delivered to there.
To comply with base security I have to ask for a photograph of the person who will be delivering the boat, holding a sign showing our job related code word for the month.
Don't be alarmed, this is standard military protocol. As you are aware, all military bases are under heightened security measures at the moment.
Unfortunately, without this photograph (and it must be a genuine picture,with a newspaper visible to confirm the date) I cannot go ahead with the deal as it will be impossible for me to take delivery.Security will not allow the driver to bring the boat onto the base without it.

The monthly pass code is 'I kleen gArfIsH nOb'. It must be hand written and exactly the same as this or it will be rejected
Sorry about the inconvenience,

Thanks,

Nick

I think it probably was, but getting a pic of someone holding a bit of card saying 'I kleen gArfIsH nOb' was just too funny not to try it
